Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Peniche, Portugal your home away from home

The Leiria district lies in the centre of the Costa de Prata, and the attractive town of Peniche is situated in the south of this district, on a rocky peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. The town was originally an island, and only joined the mainland in the 16th century. Peniche has long been an important fishing port, and is home of the some of the best seafood restaurants in the region, if not in the whole of Portugal, as well as some fantastic surfing beaches.

Things to do in Peniche, Portugal

Thanks to its coastal location, seafood is big business in Peniche, with a number of the town’s restaurants specialising in this type of cuisine. Tuna, crayfish and sardines are three of the most common items you will find on the menus, and the resulting dishes are a far cry from the tinned products found on supermarket shelves.

If you prefer to stick to self-catering, the local market if the best place to head to pick up some bargains. The fish here is extremely fresh and great value for money, and you can also pick up fruit, vegetables and lace products – the latter of which are another local speciality.

As with many Portuguese towns and villages, the focal point of Peniche is the town square. Here you will find the baroque Misericordia Church and the 16th century fortress, which has a dominating presence in such a small town. There are also plenty of shops, cafes and bars dotted around this area, so you will not find yourself short of things to do.

The beaches of the Costa de Prata are just a short distance away, with Baleal offering great surfing, and Cabo Carvoeiro the top choice for scenic views out over the ocean. Kite surfing and wind surfing are also popular on the beaches around Peniche, taking advantage of the powerful winds coming off the Atlantic. A good range of beach bars, cafes and shops can also be found around the beaches, especially at popular Baleal.

Closer to Peniche, Obidos (25km) is one of the finest examples of a Portuguese medieval town, and where you can walk around the castle ramparts and enjoy panoramic views of the region.

we love this area and the to say its a flat or apartment is an understatement

4 of 5
Great residence and great value. his is a fantastic place to take a break - wifi is from mobile unit and works very well. Cleaning is done by a local agent who look after the keys and provide an excellent service too. I cannot recommend this place enough - the caveats are that the area is at the coast and subject to coastal climate (5 mins away it will be much more arid) and also, you need to be able to drive . The beaches nearby suit walkers and sun worshippers. Hundreds of fantastic restaurants and supermarkets are within easy driving distance , 10-15 mins away. Surrounding areas are steeped in history. 45 mins from Lisbon by motorway to within a few kms.

Well kitted our comfortable villa

As above. Trees provide pleasant shade from heat of sun. Lovely shared swimming pool. Owner’s guidance notes to the whole area were a great help.
